The Paperie Grand Opening

The Paperie opened its doors on Mother’s Day weekend of this year, and has been steadily busy since Day 1. It has been an expansion of Katie Williams Design Co. to include more opportunities for people to be creative, and a way that they can more easily connect with and make an impact in the community,

Operating under the values of Create, Educate, and Inspire, The Paperie is so much more than a stationery shop. Offering products & services that are sought after by a wide variety of customers, we are able to serve the Business Owner looking to overhaul their brand, the Mom looking to get out of the house to learn something new, the Designer who sees a vision for their clients in the form of Paper, the Couple who is looking for the perfect wedding stationery for their special day, or even the Scrapbooker needing unique textures and trinkets for their next project.

Regular Creative and Business Classes are held in either their semi-private Workshop Room or open Sunset Room, overlooking Heritage Park and Kempenfelt Bay. Creating a creative hub has allowed classes for the most skilled creatives, or the most novice, with topics including Modern Calligraphy, Intro to Watercolour Florals, Paper Quilling, Floral Arranging, Paper Flowers and Printmaking. And for those who seek the advice of the experts, Business-Focused workshops have just been announced, to include Branding, Sales 101, E-Newsletters, and How to Leverage your Business’ Online Presence.

With one of Barrie’s best waterfront views, framed by exposed brick, modern furniture and fixtures, and crisp white walls, The Paperie also offers entrepreneurs and remote-workers a place to call home. With its membership-based Co-Working area, you can now access a quiet, professional, and inspirational space to get work done. Naturally, coffee is included of course!

On September 20th at 4:30pm, you are invited to The Paperie’s Grand Opening party – a late afternoon celebration with networking, light and tasty refreshments; remarks from Katie & Michelle will be at 6:00pm.
